i just love all your work.
i just want to touch it and hold it.
there is something so wonderful about chianmaille, the weight and feeling of it against your hands or body is ...

I love the colors... it almost vibrates! : ) And the weave is very nice as well.

6 hours?! The intricacies of the piece make my head swim just looking at it. This is marvellous!

I like the weave, i'm gussing it's rather stiff.. could it be used for jewellery?
6 Hours?!? Bloody hell that's fast! I like the colours too, the copper is a very nice contrast.

This weave is extremely stiff, excellent for structural means. Perfect fitting rings are a must and due to the small ring size of most jewelry it would be a large pain. The closest I've gotten to anything similar in jewelry is a quad-orb weave I created some time ago: [link]

Ah ok then, well that's at least good to know.. I won't go wasting my time trying to make jewellery out of it!
I want to make some maille bowls and bottels, I really need to start trying some of these weaves i've seen in your gallery.

But I don't understand your words..

"..modified captive orbital hex chaimaile weave.."

- would you mind explaining further?

You say hex - But I only see pents
Thanx

In it's true form it's called hex because it forms 6 cells around a center but I modifed it for my purposes. This is a pic of true hex cage: [link]
